Dear Community Partners,
This is a reminder that the McCarthy Center for Public Service and the Common Good is kicking off its Infinite San Francisco event series THIS WEEK on Thursday, October 6th in McLaren 250 on the USF Campus. The first event will celebrate and explore the culture, history, demographics, assets, and dilemmas of the Tenderloin neighborhood. The agenda for the event is below, and an informational poster is attached. This event serves as a response, through the lens of public service and community engagement, to Rebecca Solnit’s 2010 publication, Infinite City. Please consider attending, bringing your colleagues, and/or passing along this information to community members. Note that lunch will be provided to attendees.
